MOE seeking accreditation; public can call in to comment

Have concerns about the MOE Investigations and Enforcement Branch?

The Investigations and Enforcement Branch (IEB) of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) is seeking an accreditation by the Commission on the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).  CALEA is an international enforcement standards organization based in Virginia, USA that accredits agencies whose systems and directives meet internationally recognized standards for delivering service.

An assessment of the IEB's system and directives against these standards will be evaluated in an onsite assessement conducted between August 12 and August 15, 2012.  During the onsite assessment, assessors will provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the IEB's accreditation.  COMMENTS WILL BE RECEIVED IN A PUBLIC CALL-IN SESSION TO BE HELD ON AUGUST 13, 2012.  Members of the public and organizations can comment by calling 1-416-326-4426 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on August 13.  Callers will be limited to 10 minutes and must address accreditation issues.
